Whether you're worried about the sugars, thickeners and other additives in store-bought yogurt or just fed up with the cost, the Epica Yogurt Maker is the easy, healthy, money-saving alternative.
No Pre-Boiling Necessary
Most methods of making yogurt at home require you to scald the milk first. The Epica eliminates this nuisance step. Just use any pasteurized milk (2%, whole, etc.), add a culture starter (such as commercial yogurt), and it's ready to go into the incubation/storage jars. The Epica maintains the optimum temperature for safe incubation throughout the process.
6 to 12 Hour Time Indicator
How do you like your yogurt? Thin or thick? More or less tart? Use the Epica's time indicator on the lid to experiment with different incubation times; the longer the time, the thicker and tarter the yogurt will be.
Glass Jars Are BPA-Free and Dishwasher-Safe
You want super-healthy yogurt, so why put it in unhealthy plastic containers? The Epica comes with seven 6-oz. glass jars, so there are no concerns about BPAs or other toxic chemicals. Plus, everyone gets their favorite flavor at the same time. Complete with lids, the jars go straight into the refrigerator, then into the dishwasher.
Compact 9.44" Diameter Size Although it makes a total of 42 oz. of yogurt (over a quart), the Epica is designed to fit conveniently on any kitchen countertop. Manufactured for top quality performance and endurance, it's backed by a 3-year warranty.
Epica sent the Electric Yogurt Maker very quickly. I appreciated that they included a free starter and easy-to understand instruction manual giving me great information and advice that I could keep at my fingertips.
I followed the few easy steps and had my yogurt going in just minutes. I like the consistency of greek yogurt so chose to strain mine with a cheese cloth to remove the whey when it was done. I then added some local honey and chopped peaches mine but you can add anything you like. I love the ease and endless possibilities of making my own yogurt.
I would recommend the Epica Electric Yogurt Maker to anyone looking for an easy, healthy, money saving alternative to store bought yogurt.
The nutritional composition of alternative milks is considerably different from that of dairy milk. While yogurt cultures can usually manage to produce coagulation of the proteins in the alternative milks, they won’t survive in the alternative milks and can’t be recultured. To make yogurt with alternative milks, you have to use a new starter each time.
For thicker yogurt add powdered (instant or non-instant) milk to the yogurt before adding the culture. For every 3 to 4 cups fresh cow milk use 1/2 to 1 cup powdered milk solids. If using fresh goat milk or soy milk add 1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered milk solids. For best results don't mix protein sources. When using cow milk, use cow based milk solids, when using soy milk, use soy based milk solids, etc.
Add-In Ideas: Raw or pasteurized honey; vanilla, almond or any other extract; Mint; Saffron; granola; jelly or jam; pureed berries or other soft fruits
